Through it all we have done loads of reading. We found a really cool site - Storylands . We borrow the books from the library where there is a code in the back. Once at the site and code in, the story is read, there are basic comprehension questions and then fun games to be played. Katie is delighting in it and it helped her to read her first book ever this week. It's just wonderful! Even Hugh is playing along.
Last weekend we were down to Mornington to have Yum Cha with Den's family to remember the second anniversary of Poppy passing. We took the opportunity to have a walk along the beach as always. I love this first photo as it clearly illustrates how Katie is constantly following her big brother around.
This is my new fave photo of my two. Angelic aren't they! *snort*. The scrap pages that follow tell the real story!

This scrap page below shows the real story. This is why Katie is called "The Chonk" - strangling her brother, laughing all the while then doing a victory dance after he stomps off.
I sometimes go to Lien's blog, it's very inspring and this page below was made with freebies from her blog.
Nina has a fabulous range of quick pages. I find them very versatile as you can "play" with them so much as there is plenty of room to add any other goodies you might like.
